Tracing is a performative video live installation, first presented as a paper at the Performance As Research In Practice Conference, University of Bristol, 11-14 September 2003 (http:I/wwwbris.ac.uklpariplcologni.htm). The work was subsequently performed in the exhibition “Border Crossing here and somewhere”, Gallery X, Istanbul (curator Gulsen Bal, supported by British Council). The performance included one video projection, one monitor and the resulting drawings. These were left in the exhibition space for one month. This material was subsequently included in the exhibition and conference Coscienza di Sè, Galleria Neon and University of Bologna, Italy. Other related conference presentations include: 'An investigation into the role of documentation in performance art research in the digital age and its relation to liveness. Tracing', Pixel Raiders, 6-8 April 2004, Sheffield Hallam University; and ‘What might be the role of documentation in performance art research in the digital age?’, International Digital and Media Arts 2004, University of Central Florida - School of Film and Digital Media, and Ball State University, Orlando, Florida, USA, March 10-12 2004. The performance project ‘Tracing’ was a work that first embedded my practice as research methodology, where I investigated the impossibility of documenting an action in the very moment of its making. This was paralleled by my growing interest in Derrida’s work and particularly the notion of ‘supplementarity’ in the context of performance documentation practices. To present the performance event itself at PARIP instead of a paper represented my belief in the nature of this work as action based research. This has directly influenced the basis for my current research and interest in documentation of performance, particularly utilising and exploring the impact of moving image formats in relation to live action, mark making, recording and projecting filmed action into the space.
